BILL SUMMARY For SB18-043

HOUSE COMMITTEE ON STATE, VETERANS, & MILITARY AFFAIRS
Date May 3, 2018      
Location LSB A



SB18-043 - Postponed Indefinitely


12:58:15 PM  

Representative Lundeen, bill sponsor, presented SB 18-043. The bill specifies that when the Senate rejects a Governor's nominee for state office, that individual is deemed "legally unfit" and the Governor cannot nominate the rejected individual to the same office for a second time. If a nominee is rejected for reappointment, the individual is removed from office once his or her term is up and cannot exercise the duties of the office, even if a replacement has not been named. The rejected individual is eligible to be nominated or reappointed when a new Senate convenes for its first regular session and can be appointed to the office following the day when the new Senate adjourns its first regular session.
